Paulo Dybala rated as highly as Edinson Cavani

Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini has insisted that striker Paulo Dybala rates alongside Uruguayan international Edinson Cavani, reports

Zamparini has, however, insisted that the 21-year-old striker, who has struck 11 goals in 21 appearances this term, has changed completely, revealing that he no longer speaks with the talented youngster. 


In fact, the club's president has hit out at the people surrounding him, insisting that that they are 'terrible teachers'. 

Dybala has been heavily linked with a move away from the club in recent time, with Premier League giants Manchester United seemingly interested in his services. 

And, with the player's contract set to expire next year, it appears that he could complete a move away from Palermo sooner rather than later.

He has changed 

Zamparini certainly has mixed feelings about the forward, as he told Radio Kiss Kiss: "For me, Dybala rates as highly as [former Palermo stars] Edinson Cavani and Javier Pastore.

"I knew even before this season that he would be a great player. He is a golden boy.

"The problem is that he is conditioned by people that don't want to do what is right for him. He has changed completely and is surrounded by terrible teachers. I no longer speak with him.

"Now we are in the hands of certain people that profit on players and that only want to make money; people that influence players negatively, that only consider players money-making machines."

It appears, then, that the player has changed under the guidance of the people around him, with a move away from Serie A seemingly likely. 

Do United need him?

Perhaps, then a move to Manchester United could be on the cards, but it remains to be seen as to whether the Red Devils will step up their interested in the Argentine anytime soon. 

There's no doubt about it, despite already possessing an array of attacking talent, Manchester United could do with improving in attack, with the likes of Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie struggling to hit top form at the Theatre of Dreams. 

The duo have failed to impress under the guidance of Louis van Gaal this term, so perhaps the United boss will look to invest in the attacking department this summer. 

The Red Devils do, of course, have youngster James Wilson at their disposal, so perhaps Dybala could form a future partnership with his fellow youngster in Manchester.
